Microwave Ovens


A microwave oven is a kitchen appliance that may come in a variety of sizes and colors. The appliance is designed to cook or heat food quicker than is possible in a conventional oven. A man named Percy Spencer first created the microwave oven. However, Spencer did not set out to invent the microwave oven; he came across the idea by accident. He was working on a radar set and he discovered that the radiation from the set had melted a chocolate bar that was in his pocket. From here, he began to try different foods in his “microwave”. The first food ever to be cooked by Spencer was popcorn. A patent was filed in 1945 for Spencer’s creation.
